The Netherlands in five words

Last weekend the Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions hosted a trip for 70 international meeting planners to show them the qualities of The Netherlands as a business/conference destination.

A boat trip on the Amsterdam canals, a bike ride through stunning The Hague, and power kiting on the Noordwijk beach were part of the programme. We visited the beautiful Hotel Okura for a workshop with Dutch suppliers and we drank a tasty genever cocktail at House of Bols.

Last but certainly not least, we had a very unique sneak preview of the newly renovated Scheepvaartmuseum which not even our queen has seen yet. The farewell jazz dinner in the luxury Hotel Sofitel Legend The Grand topped the night off, and left everyone exhausted but happy.

Mr. Holland was there, and after two days of sightseeing asked his guests the following question: Could you describe the Netherlands in just one word? Here´s what they said, and don’t forget to take a look at the pictures we took.
